Internet Access in Vershire, Vermont

Broadband competition in Vershire is above average compared with other Vermont communities. There is an average of 4.45 providers serviceable in each census block. Vershire is currently the 133rd most connected city in Vermont. Only 4.66 percent of the area have one or fewer options for home Internet service.

We should note that since FCC data is only tallied up biannually and only published 6+ months later, provider availability shown in the results might not include the most recent network expansions or regional changes.

Viasat Internet (formerly Exede) and HughesNet are Vershire's most widely available wired Internet providers.

DSL Internet providers deliver Internet service using phone wires, which explains why DSL is marketed through companies that bundle Internet access with phone service. DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) network technology is available to 99.32 percent of area addresses. Transmitters and copper lines carrying DSL don't have as much bandwidth as coaxial or fiber-optic lines. The practical impact of this is: lower speed and dependability. Vershire's current averaged speed (download only) is a modest 53.34 Mbps as a result, below the 78.5 Mbps Vermont average download speed.

While the main providers are Viasat and HughesNet, Consolidated Communications (Formerly Fairpoint Communications) also serves Vershire with DSL coverage in 99 percent of census blocks and a maximum speed of 25 Mbps. Fixed wireless plans from brands like WaveComm deliver as much as 3 Mbps via direct wireless relays.
